Cleaning your Ti - Any tips?

  • All those days of tweaking my Ti while eating peanuts finally caught up to me... my Ti need a spring cleaning, and soon. Any tips on how to clean the oily residue without damaging the paint?

    P.S. On a mostly unrelated note, is there a replacement GLASS LCD cover available anywhere (Ti1)? Mine got a bit scratched, and with the angle of light reflection in my studio, all I see are scratches. :S

  • As with any electronics - a soft, damp cloth is really the harshest thing you should use. If you have a lot of residue just use successive wipings with the damp cloth. I have a bunch of terry cloths for cleaning my car that work nicely for stuff like this, and you can also get nice microfibre cloths at Target (although these are a bit rougher so be gentle).
